    Possibly, he certainly hasn't been used/needed much. But I agree with Klu, my 1st thought is the inexperienced Smith. Experience being what they seem to be seeking with these guys.

    Wouldn't Izzy get some playing time in the minors first?

    If they want to bring up both Springer and Izzy, they will need two spots.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Jim Day confirms that from talking to Jocketty, the Reds have offered Isringhausen a contract and will give him "a couple days" to decide. Said his bullpen session was excellent.

    This is a good read.

    Obviously he can't do anything, but I wonder what a young guy like Yonder Alonso thinks when he sees this. He has to know.

    Re: Reds Looking at Isringhausen

    I like the prospect of adding Isringhausen. Adding experienced pitchers (Springer) who have been through pennant races and also have fresh arms in August would be a plus. Izzy can also close.

    On the broadcast tonight there was discussion around who would be replaced on the 40 if Izzy and/or Springer were added. I do not believe WJ will simply DFA players in order to add. I suspect he will try to move a pitcher or two for minor league players. To me the most likely are Herrera, Del Rosario, Fisher, and possibly Valiquette or even Maloney, although the latter would be valuable as starter insurance. Any thoughts on who might be moved?

    Another possibility is that Homer could go on the 60 DL. Finally, it seems to me that the Reds need to decide what to do with Dickerson. He will use a 40 spot when he comes off the 60 DL.

    From the sounds of the pregame. Bailey could be in Louisville to start a rehab by the end of next week. So putting him on the 60 day DL would be a very short term fix. Would imagine looking at the roster, Valakia, Fisher, Burton, Sutton, Nix will be the most likely ones to get Springer, Isringhausen and Dickerson on.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Nothing wrong with taking a look at Izzy. I don't see where there are many BP arms readily available at the moment. It's that time of the year when every team is trying to fill a particular need, save some money, not give any talent up, and even resorting to "scrounging through the dumpsters". Pull one out... and put one in (Owings), as far as I'm concerned.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Really? I must've missed that part of the interview.

    Re: Reds Looking at Isringhausen

    When you are trying to win a pennant, you make the necessary moves. Remember in 1990, the team released Ken Griffey in August to make room for needed pitching. Anybody not playing to par or in the minors could get the ax.
